Wind Noise - Solved!


Recommended Posts

This one has a happy ending...  about a year ago, while turning out of a campground I dropped a rear wheel off in a small ditch. My already-cracked windshield spiderwebbed (cracked to look like a spider web). I had the windshield replaced, but kept experiencing a very loud and annoying wind noise. I was certain it was the windshield and get the windshield company out there two more times to fix their mistake. The wind noise persisted. I recently got a rock chip in my “new” windshield, and immediately got the (same) glass company out to fix it. While there the tech asked if I was still having a problem with wind noise, which I was. He went over the windshield, inside and out, and could not find a problem. 

Over the last year, I have added new spray foam under the dash and in the front run bay to try and resolve the problem. 
 

While working with him, I noticed the trim around the drivers side window had pulled out about 1/16”. I sealed the trim with ProFlex, and after a 6 hour trip, NO WIND NOISE!

Thanks for posting that. You wouldn’t readily notice 1/16. I’ll be checking mine, though I haven’t noticed much wind noise up front. However, my hearing isn’t the best.

It took me almost a year to figure it out!  I looked at that window several times and never thought the gap was big enough to cause that much noise!
